Historical Traveler Reviews Jurys Inn Nottingham
Great place to stay
i have stayed here three times before in a all girl party.i think its clean and comfortable and in a great location for the clubs and pubs in nottingham.the price is good too.i have always found the staff very frendly and helpfull.the car park is a little annoying having to go in to the gym the morning after the night before but for £5 its worth it compared to other citys.
there is buliding work next door but on a sunday morning i have neever seen anybody working.and when it is finished it will have bars and resturants opposite.i would certainally use this hotel again
Nice hotel for the price
Only stayed one night but it was a Saturday night and there were quite a few hen and stag groups. I asked for a quiet room and in fairness we were given room 613 which was at the far end of the corridor and we heard absolutley no noise at all during the night.
The rooms are similar to the Travel Inns / Travelodges in standard and very clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed for a short break. Spotless shower room ( the shower was great!) and there was quite a bit of storage space - hanging area, 2 drawers and several open drawers plus an area to put your case on. Hairdryer, air conditioning ( which was a godsend this last weekend) and TV.
I paid £49 for the night and really for the comfort, cleanliness and lack of noise I was very pleased.
If you want a quiet room ask for one of the rooms at the end of the building overlooking the station - they are on their own
Costcutting might be counterproductive
The location of this hotel means it will be popular and the rooms are better than others in Nottingham (e.g Hilton) and the overall experience better than others (e.g Moat House)
Some staff were very helpful (reception). Others (breakfast) seemed very unhappy and so those of us thinking that breakafst really did stat at 7 a.m., as we had been led to believe, had to wait.
The English breakfast is good, but otherwise choice was limited and the orange juice was consistently very dilute. One morning there was still food on the seats from the day before, suggesting that the restaurant had not been cleaned.
This put us off from eating in the hotel in the evening.
Why do they still put sheets on the beds when the sheets have holes in? What message does that send?
Together with a stinginess with towels and using what looks like the cheapest toilet roll available, this place is indicating how it values its paying customers.
A visi by an incognito director or two might be a good idea.
Staff were dreadful
The car-park is impossible to find, and we became quite stressed negotiating our way around nottingham's one way systems. The staff at the hotel were dismissive and didn't seem to care at all. None of the staff had any local knowledge and there was nothing on display about things to do around nottingham. When pressed on any issue we raised, they said "We're a new hotel"!! The fire alarm went off at 1.30am and no apology was offered when we called to see what was happening, simply an impatient fob off. The hotel itself was clean and the rooms were nice, but the staff were dreadful and put me off ever using a Jury's Inn again.
I came to Nottingham on a stag w/e in March. The hotel is easily located near the train station and is over 11 storeys tall. I walked into the hotel to be greated by two bouncers on the door. Having never been to a hotel with bouncers on reception I was intrigued to find out why, which immediately became apparent in the the hotel was Stag and Hen city. There were genuinely 12-15 separate stag or hen parties staying that w/e.
The hotel is new and the rooms clean. The only major drawback is that there are no drawer or cupboard spaces in the rooms, so are very much tailored for the keep it all in the suitcase crowd. The room price was very reasonable at £53 for a twin, but breakfast is a rip off for £9.50. don't bother with this and walk up to the station where there are several greasy spoons that do the full monty for under a £5.
The other rip off is the car park which is located in the health club across the road. It is £5 per night but you pay the daily rate (£10) if you are in there during the day, so it can work out at £15 a night. I would suggest that you move your vehicle before noon and say you arrived late the previous night.
The area is up nad coming and there was quite a lot of building site noise from the ppartments across the way. However i am sure that when they are completed it will be an excellent location.
Overall I am sure the hotel is quite different staying midweek to the w/e due to the clientele. Stay here if you want a wild w/e in Nottingham but avoid if you are up for the family wedding.
Very nice hotel
I stayed in this hotel on the 21st of January and as I live in Nottinghamshire knew it was a good location, a 3 minutes walk to some of the best bars in Nottingham, Pitcher & Piano & the Living Room being my two favourites.
We had lunch in the hotel bar which was lovely, and a pint of grolsh was only £2, bargain for a hotel.
The room was a very good size with 1 double bed and 1 single. The bathroom was also a very good size but it could have done with a few more goodies. There were 2 spare pillows and a spare blanket which wasn't really used as the heating in the room was very adequate.
Now the downsides - There is no room service in the hotel, I phoned down to reception and asked for some wine glasses to be sent to my room and was told I would have to collect them from the bar.
Next door to the hotel is a building site and our room (on the 2nd floor, room 215) looked directly out onto it which meant we had to have the curtains closed our whole stay as to avoid nosy builders peering in, saying that there was no noise from it as the hotel has excellent double glazing which blocked out any outside noise.
All in all it was a very pleasant stay and I would stay there again and at £55 per ROOM it was certainly a bargain.
Good place to stay
Stayed here on a company xmas night out. Very good hotel which has taken the budget genre up a notch or two! The room was very comfortable and the bed was amongst the most comfortable I have experienced. The breakfast is very good for a buffet and you can have as much as you like! I would urge you to try this hotel. On the negative, the car park is across the road and when raining or freezing or both as was the case for me you will not be in a great mood on arrival.That said it was worth the effort. Would look forward to staying here again.
Excellent Value For Money
Stayed at the recently opened Jury's inn for 2 days in November. I arrived by train so it was great to see the Hotel opposite the Station. There's also a Tram station 200 yards from the hotel, which can take you straight into the heart of the centre in a matter of minutes.
The reception had 4 staff on duty at check in, and were friendly,and welcoming. Rooms were about standard size for a 3 star hotel. As the hotel is new everything was clean and tidy. I was on the 8th floor overlooking a busy road (and a 'Hooters' resturant...) but thanks to the excellent soundprofing on the windows it vas very quiet. There was a bar and resturant on site and both were very good Although £9.50 is to much for breakfast.
Slight disappointment that they charge for Broadband access. £5 1 hour or £10 all day. (At the Citilodge its free) Also there were no biscuits to go with the tea/coffee.
Overall a excellent stay for £60 a night, and i would certainly stay there again. Just a shame about the internet access pricing.
Excellent hotel in a developing part of Nottingham....
We stayed in the Jurys Inn Nottingham for one night this past weekend. The main purpose of the trip was to see a gig that was being played in the city that night, so with advanced notice I managed to get a great rate of £49 per night.
This is a brand new hotel in the south east of Nottingham, about 2 minutes walk to the train & tram stations and about a 10 minute walk to the main city centre.
It is located in what I would call a developing area of Nottingham near the canal. There are a number of bars and restaurants on Canal Street which runs to the north of the hotel, and are about a 5 minute walk away. Apart from that the city centre as a whole is easily accesible by the modern tram system in place which runs north & south through the centre and to the outskirts, very impressive it is too.
As for the hotel itself, it is a very typical Jurys Inn and anybody who has had experience of the Jurys in places like Dublin or Cork will know what to expect.
There is an excellent bar and restaurant on site offering food from 11am-10pm I believe and of course an all you can eat buffet breakfast served from 7am. Although the breakfast is excellent, it is a little expensive at £9.50 and I wouldn't say it is worth the money, but if you do manage to get a decent rate which includes breakfast you won't be disappointed.
We were in room 901 on the 9th floor with excellent views of Nottingham and the surrounding area. The room is standard Jurys, modern with a decent sized bathroom, tv, hairdryer and plenty of storage space for clothes, suitcases etc.
There are no irons/boards in the rooms, but there is a ironing room on the 8th floor, although we did not use this facility on this occasion.
The staff were extremely friendly with an easy check in and check out, and pleasant attentive waiting staff at breakfast.
As for car parking, this is currently available at a local gym for £5 per night, although I did hear whisperings that there should be an underground car park included at some time in the future. Don't quote me on that though!!!! As we arrived by train we didn't utilise the car park facility so I am unable to comment on the pros and cons of this service.
Even with the breakfast we found the hotel to be excellent value especially having managed to get the £49 rate in advance.
All in all a fantastic new and modern hotel in a area which should become even more vibrant in years to come.
This brand new hotel (opened mid September 05) is only a short walk from Nottingham city centre and has a good reception area with some comfortable seating and friendly staff.
The rooms are well thought out with excellent double glazing so there's no traffic noice. Although not plush the furnishings are bright and cheerful, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was good and everywhere was spotlessly clean. There's even the bonus of complimentary tea and coffee in the room so you'll have everything you need for a short stay.
The Intro Bar just off reception is trendy and lively with plenty of seating and not only sells alcohol but coffee too. Two small disappointments were finding out the All Day breakfast shown on the Intro Bar menu at £7.50 was not available there and breakfast had to be taken in the Innfusion restaurant which at £9.50 we though a little on the expensive side for a 3* hotel. Car parking is available across the road in the Holmes Place car park and can only be exited once you have paid £5 so if you have to nip in and out more than a couple of times the cost can mount up.

... as soon as I decide to do something then have to bring together the things I need as I go along instead of getting them ready beforehand. So you can guess my feelings of oncoming doom, knowing I had to ask Hazel to go inside the boat while she was in the lock to get me the key. In my mind I was going through the scenarios "Why don't you get things ready before you start out?", or even worse, the silence of the slightly raised eyebrow and look ...
